Description: Daniel Barkowitz, Ass’t. VP Financial Aid at Valencia College, will review the process by which financial aid awarding takes place and will explore the various ways institutions take “outside” funding into account.
We will review sample financial packaging policies from private, public, two-year and four-year institutions and will define both Federal requirements and institutional policies which may come into conflict with private donor intentions.
We will also explore ways in which students and their advocates can interact with financial aid offices to help make better use of private donor and philanthropic funds. There will be time for questions and explorations of best practices.
